The financial organizations of Honduras and Guatemala have recently declared that they may accept bitcoin transactions. As a result, both governments have decided to utilize the entity’s upcoming virtual currency.
José Blanco, Guatemala’s vice-president of the reserve bank, stated that a stable currency based on decentralized currencies is conceivable. Blanco, meanwhile, formed a committee to study the proposal and carry it out. The virtual money may be dubbed “Quetzal,” according to the bank official.
Honduras is interested in entering the cryptocurrency industry.
While the Guatemalan government allows BANGUAT to establish its cryptocurrency token at its leisure, Honduras joins the CBDC project. Following El Salvador’s smooth transition last week, both nations have been eager to accept cryptos.
However, unlike El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are focusing on establishing a stablecoin rather than simply embracing Bitcoin. The Salvadoran government-designated Bitcoin as a legal tender, allowing people and businesses to conduct digital transactions.
El Salvador’s cryptography execution was dubbed a “Bitcoin plot.” It had to purchase 400 BTC to finish it. The president of the country, Nayib Bukele, stated that this huge Bitcoin acquisition would raise their worth, and he was partially correct. BTC hit $52,000 after the law was passed but subsequently dropped below $45,000.
However, the government of El Salvador stated that purchasers might get $30 in Bitcoin if they complete deals. Although this initiative is a marvel for many crypto enthusiasts in El Salvador, it has created a slew of issues for another group. A surge of demonstrations has been recorded in the country after the bill for BTC was adopted.
Despite El Salvador’s issues with cryptocurrencies and attempts to reform them, Honduras will take a chance and accept them. However, the BCH has not stated when its stable currency would be launched or whether it will be connected to the price of a dollar or the lempira, its native currency.
Several Latin American nations permit cryptocurrency trading.
Several Central American and Latin American countries have expressed interest in the cryptocurrency industry. However, this is not officially. Honduras joins the list of Central American countries interested in dealing with virtual currencies, El Salvador and potentially Panama.
Countries like Colombia, Argentina, and Brazil, located south of Central America, want to launch their cryptocurrency exchanges. These Latin nations may adhere to Honduran concepts and the BCH to develop their cryptocurrency-based stablecoin. However, as El Salvador has done, each country’s government might contemplate embracing decentralized cryptos.
